How to shoot the dawn?
Dawn is perhaps the most beautiful time of the day. And, of course, at the dawn, really admirable shots can turn out. However, in order to get an excellent photo at this time of day, you need to know a number of important rules.
Let's see how to properly shoot the dawn.
Take into account the moment
To get beautiful shots of dawn, clearit is important to get up early, it is important to prepare a place and position for shooting half an hour before the first sunbeam appears from behind the horizon. By the way, you can find out the time of sunrise on any meteorological portal.
At the beginning of the action, the light has a minimumintensity, but because at that moment you need to shoot at a long exposure - from a few tens of seconds to several minutes. If you do not have much experience in photography, entrust the process of selecting the exposure during the first dawn minutes of "automation", but if the manual setting process does not greatly distract you from the main process, control manually - this will help to achieve very unusual effects.
When the sun begins to rise from beyond the horizon,can appear dense cloud haze, which will make the frames less saturated and bright. At this point, you can go into the shooting mode - so you can get interesting shots even in the conditions of this very haze.
The best time to shoot a landscape is two hours afterAt the moment, all elements are bright and contrasting. It is worth noting that the brighter the light, the sharper will be the difference between the illumination of the sky and the earth. For correct exposure, use the gradient filter at this time.
To take pictures at dawn, it's bestwide-angle lens and telephoto lens. Also, you will need a tripod, which will avoid blurring in the pictures due to trembling in your hands. If there is no tripod, we recommend pressing the camera closer to the body - so the oscillations will be minimal.
Under no circumstances should you aim the lens directly in the sun during exposure adjustment, but, of course, do not completely turn away from it.
Remember! At dawn hours, lighting changes almost every second, so do not be afraid to press the shutter release more often, so you have a much better chance of getting a really interesting shot.
Play with focus. The change of the focal length will provide sharpness of various parts of the pictures - this is an excellent opportunity to find an unusual picture.
Do not remove mindlessly! Yes, there can be nothing more beautiful than nature in the dawn hours, but you still have to come up with a story and composition - only so you can get an outstanding picture, not another beautiful dawn frame.
